Following the release of the time table for the 2021 Ekiti State Governorship Polls, the two top parties, the APC and the PDP have come out throwing tantrums at each other as the day draws near.
According to the statement released by the Independent National Electoral Commission, the polls will take place on 18 June, 2021.
The PDP camp told the ruling APC to start making ready their hand over notes, while the PDP expressed confidence that their candidate of choice will replace Kayode Fayemi.
The State APC Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, said, “The PDP is bedevilled with a myriad of crises that won’t allow it win any election.
“Let me tell you that we are prepared and well-grounded to win the poll. APC is a more cohesive party. We are united under the leadership of Governor Fayemi. We are banking on our impressive performances to win and we are sure that the PDP will suffer another defeat again like they did in 2018.”
However, his PDP counterpart, Raphael Adeyanju said “We know Ekiti (people) will reject a party that has disappointed them. A party that can’t fix their roads, that can’t provide employment for youths, that can’t effect promotions for workers, can’t continue to rule us. So, we are well prepared.
“You can all see that the PDP demonstrated maturity in the way we handled our zonal congress while all issues relating to the state zonal congress were being resolved amicably without rancour.”
